AOL AmericaOnline Channels Screen



Company Description

Originally known as America Online, AOL began around 1985 and has grown to become a mega global media powerhouse. I was involved growing customer engagement just at the time about half of all U.S. homes with Internet access had it through AOL. While working on various content channels – including News (AOL Live!), Sports (The Sporting News), Family Computing, Travel, Shopping, and Entertainment – the company experienced their greatest growth.

Project Description

One of the iterations I worked on for AOL version 3. This version might have been too “cyber” looking and the text on the buttons is dithering oddly I think. Another designer came up with the final version which used oval shaped buttons which had a friendlier feel and was less technical looking.
